Bloor Research Recommends:
How to Maximize Value of Data Integration Investments

Webinar: Wednesday, November 5, 2014

Data as a competitive advantage is now a given. However, can IT continue to cost-effectively support this ever-growing critical business need? How can senior IT executives, IT managers and architects ensure that they are getting the best value out of data integration investments?

Join Kristin Kokie, Informatica's Interim CIO, in a lively dialogue with Philip Howard, Research Director, Bloor Research. The two will discuss Mr. Howard's findings from a 2014 Bloor Research project based on 292 responses from companies using data integration tools.

Kristin and Philip will discuss three critical criteria to keep in mind when considering a data integration platform:

  • Suitability for various use cases
  • Ease-of-use, productivity, and re-usability
  • Overall cost-effectiveness vs. initial costs

Philip will also share how various data integration vendors fared, in terms of these three criteria, in the minds of survey respondents.
